In the Spring our thoughts turn to raising great chicken... and the final prep in brooders, tractors, facilities, the crew, the schedule and the Freezers. 

Freezer readiness means - On Sale time. Sales began last month and we build on that this month so we can ready the facility for this year's chicken. 

Below you will find a quick update on home delivery, the enterprises, Spring Sale items and a super farm update at the end.

See you out there, 
Kevin and Cathy  
Home Delivery News    
Terry Maser and Donna Russert take over our bi weekly home delivery service. These two ladies run all our value added activities as well.

If I had to attribute our survival to anyone in these tough times it would be these two wonderful ladies. 

I am so grateful for them - please extend your appreciation too for their efforts to keep us going. 
Terry takes care of our Morristown, Jefferson City and the Greater Dandridge / White Pine area. 
Donna takes care of our Knoxville customers. 
Enterprises & Inventory    

Fresh Eggs. Strong production, don't be shy. We're back in Yoder's Market. Pickled eggs soon. Still packing in an interim carton.    

Forest Raised Pork. Inventory OK. Pork Chops low.  Next Whole and Half opportunity is Oct/ Nov. > Pasture Raised Chicken.  Sold out of everything except, Leg Quarters, Hearts and Liver. Chicken ordering will open with the June 4 newsletter.  

Beef Inventory Updated. More filets, ribeyes, roasts and soup bones. Price improvement on ground.   

> Pasture Raised Turkey.  Thighs, legs, wingletts remain. No more ground. Tip - An odd cut, but winglettes make a great stock making item. More skin, bone, meat and a higher fat content - a rich stock indeed.     

> Grass Fed Lamb  A heavy "on Sale catagory". Most cuts in stock. No leg of lamb.

Some Great Farm News ....... 
The spirit of bartering is alive in Tennessee  - Thanks to E&W Construction for getting the subfloor laid in the store - for the low, low price of a hog and a lamb. 

Stephen did such a great job, we persuaded him to frame it and put the roof on so we can do easy stuff and get it up and running this fall  - Framing starts next week !!

We are excited !! (and grateful for our momma sheep for financing it : ) ). Stay tuned.
